7 Best Slimming Foods to Lose Your Holiday Gut

Indulging during the holidays comes with the territory. If you find that eating and drinking too much has left its mark on your midsection, you’re not alone. While there is no magic bullet for losing belly fat, including certain nutritious, delicious, and, most importantly, slimming foods can help.

Once the holiday season is behind you, your thoughts might turn to banishing that holiday gut you acquired from weeks of overdoing it on seasonal goodies. While it’s OK to cut back on food, resist the urge to adopt a drastic diet that slashes calories, restricts certain foods or food groups, or all of the above. Eating skimpy, unsatisfying meals, and even skipping snacks will backfire, leaving you feeling defeated about getting back in shape.

Instead, include these seven slimming foods in a balanced eating plan to minimize hunger while blasting belly fat. And while you’re at it, try out these 21

Here’s how to lose weight before the New Year

The New Year always brings with it, a lot of celebration and chances are you want to lose some weight before the end of December so that you can look good and feel great when 2021 arrives.

Truth be told, weight loss should not be for an occasion or a reason. In fact, anything that you do too quickly is probably not good for your health. While I am not in favour of sudden weight loss, I believe that eating the right way, and maintaining a proper diet framework, will help you stay healthy and keep your weight lower too.

7 Ways Tea Can Help You Lose Weight

What’s not to love about tea? It’s hydrating, it’s flavorful, and depending on what herbs and ingredients it contains, it can either give you energy or help you prep for a good night’s sleep. But can tea help you lose weight? If you’re trying to shed pounds, tea should definitely be your new best friend. Not only can it offer a zero-calorie alternative to some of your go-to sugary beverages, but it also has properties that can suppress your appetite, support your metabolism, and ultimately help you achieve your goals—that is, as long as you’re also adhering to a healthy overall diet.

“While weight loss is most effective with a balanced nutrition approach and exercise, tea can enhance your progress,” says Carrie Lupoli, certified health and nutrition coach. “Teas should not be considered a ‘weight loss’ plan, but merely another way to support the work of a balanced diet and

Where Do You Lose Weight First?

People want to lose weight for many reasons: health, athletic performance, appearance, the desire to keep up with kids or grandkids.

But where exactly the weight will come off first is highly individualized. There’s little science to suggest that all people lose weight in particular areas first.

Seeing results in a targeted body zone can be motivational, but can you predict (or better yet, influence) where you’re likely to lose weight first? Probably not.

Here’s what we know about the science of weight distribution and regional weight loss.

Genetic factors largely determine where fat is distributed in your body.

Genetic analysis shows that the relationship between genes and body fat distribution is stronger in women than it is in men. For example, if people in your family tend to accumulate weight in the hips and thighs, you may gain weight there, too.

Studies suggest that genetic factors also influence weight

Olly Murs wanted to lose weight to impress his girlfriend’s brothers.

The ‘Please Don’t Let Me Go’ hitmaker dropped an impressive amount of weight earlier this year in a bit to get on the same “level” as Amelia Tank’s siblings when they holidayed together in Bali.

He said: “I had gone through a big year with my injured knee that I got quite big and I ate quite a lot because I was sat around doing nothing. My knee was getting better and I started training again. I was going to Bali at the start of the year and I wanted to get fit for it because Amelia’s brothers are so ripped. I wanted to get on their level. When we came back from Bali, lockdown kicked in and I put all the weight back on. My body doesn’t look like it does in those
